The Wiki says 96% to 98% of the world believe in a higher power of some form, which is a very high number for something to be easily dismissed as "attempts of an awaking intelligence to reconcile mushroom trips with reality." In a world of 7 billion, that still leaves about two hundred million people who share your belief, so you have plenty of company.
I call bullshit on that. Given that the worlds most populous country is predominantly atheistic, I'd say the percentage of people is a bit lower than that.
This was my reference for it: Demographics of Atheism with quite a few global studies citing 2.4% to 3.8% as atheist, and 12%-18% nonreligious/agnostic.
